For Elementary Schools.

By RICHARD BITHELL, C.T., Author of "Spelling Taught by Transcribing and Dictation."

The chief peculiarities of this work are, its divisions into lessons of equal length, each lesson treating of a distinct subject, and containing as much matter as can be read and remembered without undue labour on the part of teacher or pupil; and in the exclusion of those details of war and bloodshed, which too frequently occupy the attention of children on their first introduction to History. An attempt has also been made to treat every historical event in such a manner as to cherish sentiments of charity and forbearance towards all good men, by refraining from the practice of exciting odium against whole bodies and sects of men. Appended to the work are copious Genealogical, Chronological, and other tables, from which the teacher may collect facts and dates, wherewith to fill up the historical outline given in the body of the work.
